Redskins Insider: October 14, 2007 - October 20, 2007

Rabach Not Looking Good/Springs Likely Playing

Shawn flew back from Dallas last night and reported to Redskins Park, today. He was there for meetings and is participating ina wlak-through as I write this, according to people in the know. He was upgraded to probable and is expected to play, though given that he missed all week...

Groins, Groins And More Groins

Casey Rabach is listed as probable, though he did not practice all week. Coach Joe said he will be a game-time decision. Casey said he will work out hard Saturday and re-evaluate then. As an aside, I'd be remiss not to mention that Casey has perhaps the hairiest back I...

Injuries

Casey Rabach (groin) did not practice but remains intent upon playing. Stephon Heyer (hamstring) is still out, and...

Guest Blog - Jess

Jess, a reader who knows her stuff and does some great stuff, wanted to pass along an interview she did with Aaron Schatz of Football Outsiders, and, at the risk of getting all kissy-face with everyone, I just want to say that Football Outsiders rocks and you guys should check...

From the Practice Field...

Jasno phoned to tell us who's present and who's missing from the afternoon practice: Shawn Springs remains with his father; there's no change in Ron Springs' condition. As for the offensive line, Casey Rabach, Todd Wade and Stephon Heyer (along with, obviously, Randy Thomas) were not on the field. The...

Rabach Speaks

Casey says he's feeling a lot better. Still too early to say anything for sure about this weekend, but as he joked himself, "I'm too dumb not to play." He'll rest and get treatment but the team is hopeful that even if Casey does not practice he may be able...

Injury Update

Here's the top portion of the story I am working on for tomorrow. Coach Joe said they could end up moving Fabini back to tackle and start DeMulling if need be Sunday. Pucillo would replace Rabach if need be. Lorenzo Alexander, a DL who played OL in the OTA...

Monday-Afternoon H-Back

Okay, maybe 11:30 is still considered morning, not really sure, but here's what I got. Before we examine just how horrible the offense was again in the second half, which just like the New York game cost them a victory (a single first down in the first 25 minutes of...

Hello From Lambeau

This is Green Bay people. Stil a little warm by their standards - about 40 degrees - but overcast with the sun just peaking out over one corner of the stadium. Smoke stacks in the out in the distance and a sea of green and yellow flooding out over the...
